Pest-Free Travel Tips

Aug 4, 2018 -- Posted by : Thomas Pest Control

Pests are not at the forefront of our thoughts during vacation time. If you are staying in a hotel or new place, do your best to protect yourself from bed bugs. There are a few simple precautions you can take that can significantly decrease the likelihood that you will bring those dreaded blood-suckers home with you. When you first enter your room, pull the luggage rack away from the wall and keep your luggage there during the duration of your stay. Then, inspect the bed while paying extra attention to the region closer to where you will lay your head. Examine behind the headboard if possible, though in many hotels it is anchored to the wall. Pull up the edges of blankets and sheets to examine the ridges of the mattress. Look for any small, dark spotting that is bed bug feces, as well as live bed bugs. If you do find what you think is evidence, call the front desk and alert them to the issue.

When you return home, put dryer-safe items in the dryer on high heat for a few minutes if you are concerned you may have brought bed bugs home. If you are concerned about bed bugs or would like to know more about them and how we can help, let us know and we will be happy to assist you.
